Did you ever make a dish that you hoped would get "Ooh"s and "Ahh"s, but instead got "Ew"s and "Argh"s? I've gotten pretty bored with the steamed veggie routine. I thought, "Broccoli and cheese rice sounds great, sounds different." It actually turned out quite well. The oldest was brave enough to taste it. When the squirt next to him asked how it was, he replied,"Surprisingly, quite good." He polished off his share, but he was the only kid who dared.
Thank you for that bit of affirmation, son.
Needless to say, I won't be posting the recipe.
